The English doesn't suggest that I or the person I'm asking is included in "everybody." It could mean, "How are all of them doing?" No! I can't believe I wrote such a stupid thing a month ago. "All of them would be "lākou," not "kākou," which always includes the speaker and the addressees.

"Doing" is.a misleading prompt. "To do" is "hana."

With the interrogative How, the context is asking how they are feeling.
